Purim festival in Mea Shearim

On the festival of purim people, especially kids, get dressed up. Here in the ultra orthodox Mea Shearim. The celebration is to commemorate a miraculous legendary event when the Jews were saved from a malicious plot in the babylonian times. People are supposed to get drunk and bring presents to their friends and neighbors. This normally austere neighborhood celebrates in particular enthusiasm.
